PLEASE NOTE THIS RETREAT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED
This two day stress management course and micro-adventure provides men with the tools they need to manage stress and improve well-being through progressive lifestyle medicine and ocean sports.
This course will take you back to basics within nature at our spectacular secluded location on the banks of the River Fal in the heart of Cornwall, that is only reachable on foot or by boat. Expect messing around on boats, sea swimming, bushcraft, great food and developing stress management skills.
Based on the grounds of a 300 year old Stone 'Woodsmans' cottage, there is an entire woodland wonderland in the forest including a huge fire pit, hunting Lodge, tree house, outdoor kitchen, bushcraft area and outdoor feast table. Accommodation is derived of an indoor communal barn or hammock area. There is also a swimming platform perfect for wild swimming in the river Fal. This course is suitable for all abilities.
